In February 1995, Karen and Dave West became local business owners with the opening of Rolling Pin in the Brandon Town Center Mall. Their second store was re-opened in Tampa at WestShore Plaza in May 1997. After 12 years in the business, Karen and Dave decided to take Rolling Pin in a new direction. This overall new concept is intended to allow customers to sample products, purchase retail kitchen tools, and develop cooking skills necessary to become confident home chefs.
In 2006, Karen and Dave closed the Brandon and Tampa locations and in August opened a 4,500 sq. ft. store in Brandon. The store offers a 1,000 sq. ft Culinary Center and approximately 3,000 sq. ft of gourmet retail space. It also features a Demonstration Center and Wine Bar. The idea for this new and larger concept has been in the works for a number of years and is now a dream come true for Karen and Dave, who have a passion for food and cooking. They also have extensive backgrounds in food service and management.
